Unique article and read.

I think Castlevania shouldve been on that list.

Symphony of the Night was Teen yet Lament of Innocense and Curse of Darkness were bumped up to Mature... why?



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

i agree with most of that.

Some people are just retards or they are like jack thompson

Nice find!

I totally agree with the halo part. Perfect example of why we need a 15+ rating.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

the ESRB would've gotten raped by the media if they gave mass effect a Teen rating.
even with Mature people went crazy.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

Cool read.

The only reason i can think of some games getting the up rating would be for market purposes. Halo, DoA, and others were designed for the adult crowd and wanted to draw them in. Other than that i got nothing.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

Pretty cool article.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

Meh. It doesn't matter if you're 17 or older.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

Good find! Halo had no reason to be rated M.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

No the ESRB did call it right. The only one that was wrong was COD 2 & 3. Those should have been Mature. The ESRB rates games based on content. Swearing, Sexual Scenes, Sensual content, Graphic violence. Those will be confined to the Mature audience.

You have to realize, that just like comics with the Comics Code, videogames are under a lot of scrutiny. And it's thanks to the ESRB that the gaming industry is alive today. Games like Mortal Kombat and GTA, without the ESRB, would have soccer moms rioting in the streets. Do they do a bad job? That really depends on the game. However, it's a job that someone's got to do. If they're rating a game M, they're doing it for the safety of the industry, not to be ignorant pricks.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

cool article, and i agree on most of them.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

Thankfully i'm not under 18 so i really could care less what ratings games get. I'd actually prefer more games get m ratings especially ones with online play to keep annoying kids out of my ears.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

I think Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter was "T," as opposed to "M" because you didn't really see the enemies you killed. Most of the action was over great distances.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

I agree with some, and some of their theories...just wtf?!



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

i agree with almost all of this.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

Good read. I don't understand why Halo got a M rating in the States, but in Europe (well, the UK at least) it got a 16+.
Differnt views on what is "violent" and "really violent" I guess.

What would that do? There are tons of 10 year olds playing M-rated games online.



Misrated 10 Games ESRB Got Wrong GameTrailers.com Forums

Well, for the time Lament of Innosence did have a bit more blood than most, quite a bit in comparison to SOTN, so I kindof agreed with the M on that one, but I think they did tone COD down quite a bit and I think it could have easily passed with a T rating.

One that I always laughed about was Starfox Adventures. I mean, I know there was no E10 yet, but what the heck separated it from anything like Zelda? I really hope that it wasn't based on Krystals outfit cause that's the only thing that I can even think of that would make it anything other than E.... and that's just plain disturbing to think about. That, and where was this blood that was mentioned on the back? It will forever be a mystery
